more of an idea of price than anything. i cant afford them right now unless someone has some free lol. but i want to buy some in a couple of weeks to sort out my noisy engine once and for all.

plus i need a drivers side door lock if someone has one going

dunno, i cant see inside the engine

its done it from about 3 months after i had the car, this was may just in time for me to have no warranty lol.

i replaced the oil about 2 months ago to see if that would do something but its just as bad.

they dont do it all the time its maybe once or twice a week, which is somewhat confusing.

May be worth doing the diesel oil trick.


Drain the oil and refil with 10w/40 Diesel engine oil.

Run with that for 5000 miles, then drain and refil with normal engine oil.

Diesel oil is the same as Petrol Engine oil except for extra detergents in Diesel oil. This normally cleans the oilways gently.

does that really work tho, no harm in trying i guess, its easier and cheaper to change the oil than take the tappets out.

sorry to revive this thread, but did the oil trick work?
I'm having ticking noise since my last engine ruibuild.
